Limiting beliefs are why people fail

Success is an impostor

No, it’s not a statement to grab your attention.  Really.

Most people have this idea that hitting a pin level with their MLM or an income level will make them successful.

Sorry ladies, for the language… but that pin level or income figure is not success, it’s bullshit.  Believing that some wonderful feeling or change is going to occur within us when we ‘hit’ that level, that we will ‘feel’ successful when we ‘do ‘get there’ is why I say success is an impostor.

Money just makes people more of what they are.

Always has, always will.

4 Tiny Habits: Success for MLM & Sponsors 

Everybody knows that success can and is defined 1000 different ways by a 1000 different people but failure is always described the same way.  As Og Mandino points out, failure is a person’s inability to reach their goals in life, whatever they may be.

Turns out real success is knowing ‘how’ to achieve our goals, not the goals themselves.

Once you know ‘how’ does anything else really matter?   It’s like magic once we understand that both success and failure are impostors and everybody knows that a strategy based on a lie (or an impostor) is doomed.

Maybe that explains why so many people who do ‘hit’ the level they were shooting for are rarely happy.  They can’t help but shoot for the next level believing that will make them happy, and surrender to the pressure to keep getting bigger.

On the other hand the tiny percentage of people who learn ‘how’ to accomplish what they set out to do – the ones who ‘know’ it’s ‘done before they’ve even begun’ – have a quiet confidence and peace that is compelling because they have discovered the meaning of one word and what it takes to ‘become’ that word.

So what is that one word we must truly understand and become?

4 Tiny Habits

Once we know it is NOT a characteristic and we take the 4 tiny steps to develop 4 tiny habits, everything not only gets easy, and we know we are already successful.  And all we have to do to keep it is… drum roll please… give it away.  Again and again.  Very cool.

Here is what Hill has to say, and let’s remember, he spent 25 years studying this and found ‘rags to riches’ people all, as in every single one of the 10’s of 1000s, had these 4 tiny habits.

There are four simple steps which lead to the habit of PERSISTENCE. They call for no great amount of intelligence, no particular amount of education, and but little time or effort.”

Trust me on this.  I’ve got no great amount of intelligence or education, nor did I put in much time or effort, but both myself and wifey, The Fabulous Davene committed to these 4 tiny habits and that, really, is the root of our blessings in business and life.

You can get the step-by-step directions to persistence right here as well as a free copy of Think and Grow Rich.

The question becomes……can you think of a single reason not to do it right now?

See, there are only 2 types of people in the world of network marketing.   Those who think getting to a pin level will make them successful and those who learn the formula that makes people successful.

That’s really a deeper than it appears statement.

What would you be willing to do to learn how to be a successful person?  You see, the pin level doesn’t turn us into successes. Successful people turn themselves into achievers.


And that’s a massive difference.

You Can’t Miss If You Create 4 Tiny Habits & Keep Giving Them Away.

Once we know persistence is NOT a characteristic but the by-product of 4 tiny habits and persistence conquers all, we get to keep it by giving it away.

And the more we give it away, the more our groups sponsor.  Persistence is what duplicates and everybody knows duplication is caught, not taught.

Leave me a comment and let me know if you’d like to drop in on a Think and Grow Rich Mastermind call.  It’s free and we don’t sell anything.   We just keep giving it away 🙂

About the Author

  • I start my day with this each morning. I commit each morning to learning and developing each day.

  • Mark,
    i love your tips you give, Im a Bostonian as ur self. I good at not giving up! Pushing thru. But my persistance needs some help.I would love to listen in.

  • I have read “think and grow rich” and was “transformed” by what I read. Then life gets in the way and we return to our old thinking. I pick it up occasionally along with “Power of your subconscious mind” and read random chapters to try to “keep up” the “right” thinking. To tune into a mastermind webcast to see it in play would be great.

  • I lov everything you do for people. I follow you all the time and forward your email videos to my downline. A webinar would be great if you can plan well ahead in order to get people to schedule to be there.
    I am currently with Zeek Rewards as an affiliate. Your remarks if you have any on Zeek would be appreciated. The one habit I dislike of myself is that I currently research over and over the program I am in. I read all the good and bad that people say. I do this to stay ahead of the curve but the negative/speculative comments stay in my mind. I want to stay positive but there always is that planted in my brain…negative comments. How do I get rid of them? I guess by stop reading them but it has become a bad HABIT. Is there a way to replace this one bad habit?

  • Hi Mark,
    Think and Grow Rich is a powerful book – I need to get into the habit of consulting it more often! As you say, we all have habits and the hardest habits to break are the bad ones. Why?Because they’re so easy to get into the habit of doing!

    Love the idea of a Think and Grow Rich webcast.

  • I’m doing an Energy MLM it works because not really selling anything. Still very hard to get people to switch even if it would save them money. There is no contracts and no money out of their pocket would like to learn how to convince people its not a scam and they should switch.

  • Hi Mark Your Awesome saw you at the convention in FL in Feb. like to be part of The Mastermind call Thank you Have a Blessed day!

  • Mark! I love your passion! To give away to get more! I have learned so much in your Go90Grow course and it was the best ROI on my investment I have ever received!
    My worse habit was thinking I didn’t have the skills to be successful. Now after this great course I know the 4 steps of a persistent habit and my old Blueprint is fading each day!
    The success formula I use to date is
    DMP with a burning desire+WPOA including my OATS each week+MMA of the go90grow group+PMA and I know now what I didn’t know before this course and I know where I am going so I can lead others there as well!
    Thank you for teaching me that we are in the “Duplication Business” and my job is to Collect Decisions and work 20% of the time and reap 80% of the rewards!~

  • You always deliver the goods! I love reading your blog! This is so elegantly simple and so right on, as usual. Those 4 tiny habits have always been the roadmap to success. As Earl Nightingale said “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. If a man is working toward a predetermined goal and knows where he’s going, that man is a success…. We must control our thoughts in order to control our lives… Ideas are worthless unless we act on them… Our rewards will always be in direct proportion to our service…. ” If we think about each of the 4 habits you’ve defined, they fit together to make the perfect 4-habit solution that if we actually USE them, will drive us to our success. (I’d owned Think and Grow Rich for at least 15 years, and even read much of it, but NEVER had a CLUE how transformational your guidance througg the TAGR course and Go90Grow would be.) Thanks, Mark.

  • Trish is 200% on! Earl Nightingale’s “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” is difficult for some. Progressive is the key word and it doesn’t mean you are a liberal! [Of course if that works for you go for it!] I too have read T&GR dozens of times, listened to every chapter six times or more and until I participated in your coaching the pieces were all in disarray. Mark you are the best!

  • Hi Mark, As always, I get so much from you information on your videos. Yes I would like to be on one of the webinairs of think and grow rich and anything else that you are going to do. Thanks so much again, gaile

  • I’dlike to tune in to a Rich and Grow Rich call. I love your
    positive training……Have missed some, bu will eventually get to them. Habit is a hugh word… I am working on the 4 tiny steps, making a new great habit.

  • Mark,
    The think and grow rich bonus of go90grow has been not a game changer, but a life changer. Everyone would say “u got to read the book” this class is not just read the book, it is transforming to be like the book. My business, and my life will never be the same. If you consider to run a think and grow rick webinar or training of any sort; I would certainly encourage anyone to attend.

    Thanks to the go90grow team, I AM on my ranch in the country, even before I am on it.


  • You’ll find that skill in the links within the site

  • Hey Mark –
    Persistance is a habit that has paid off – I’m glad you focused on it.
    I love “Think and Grow Rich,” and would love a webcast.

    What tool do you recommend for discovering my “definiteness of purpose?”

    Thanks for all you know, share, and do.

Studying both Og Mandino’s Greatest Salesman I&II…however…here in “The Master Key” lay the foundation! What an awakening…my success was already determined before I even joined Qivana 3 years ago! Now I MUST shift my thinking…and I NEED this MKMMA like I need AIR! I ansciously await the start date for Qivana Peeps! THANK-YOU!!!
